The Long Dark: Tales from the Far Territory Part 3 is Here

Tales of the Far Territory DLC Part Three: Frontier Comforts Hinterland Studio

Hinterland Studio just dropped the third installment for The Long Dark: Tales from the Far Territory DLC called Frontier Comforts. This update introduced a new mechanic, Frontier Cooking, that lets players cook up delicious meals like rabbit stew, acorn pancakes, and peach pies using various ingredients in the game.

Three new revolvers have also been added. The Hunter's Revolver is a new weapon in The Long Dark that is perfect for killing prey from a long distance. The Forester's Revolver is an old and reliable weapon used for various purposes. The Warden's Revolver is a lightweight gun with a short barrel for faster aiming.

The new stuff mentioned above is available to those who have the Tales from the Far Territory DLC. But for players who only have the base game, the company also released a free update with plenty of improvements and bug fixes.

One of the biggest changes in the free update is that the game now supports 60 FPS on the following platforms:

  • Xbox Series X/S - Targeting 30 FPS at 4K. Targeting 60 FPS at 1440p.
  • Xbox One X - Targeting 30 FPS at 4K. Targeting 60 FPS at 1440p.
  • Playstation 5 - Targeting 30 FPS at 1680p. Targeting 60 FPS at 1680p.
  • Playstation 4 Pro - Targeting 30 FPS at 1680p. Targeting 60 FPS at 1680p.

Furthermore, players can now set up their own fishing locations in regions that have bodies of sufficiently deep water. All they have to do is use a hatchet to break the ice, literally.

  • Tip-Ups: You can place a new Tip-Up over any ice fishing hole and it will catch a fish for you (unless the line breaks, you get unlucky, or have left it out too long and it becomes ruined).
  • Fishing Lures: We've added new Fishing Lures to improve your chances of catching a Rare Fish, and you can also harvest raw fish to create Bait. These two items can be added to Tip-Ups or regular fishing lines to increase your chance to catch fish and encourage larger fish to bite.
  • Rare Fish: This update includes four new Rare Fish, including the Burbot, Goldeye, Red Irish Lord, and Rockfish.
  • Burdock: We've also added Burdock, a new harvestable plant. Look out for their distinctive stalks and use an appropriate tool to dig their roots out from the ground. With a small amount of preparation, you can eat them raw, cook them as part of a recipe, or make a warming tea that will help combat food poisoning.
